Friday 13th Formula Fun

Friday, 13 July 2012   |   Creativity Challenges

Friday 13thWell here we are and it's Friday 13th.  Unlucky for some but what a great day for some creative cunning.  Did you know that the longest time it is possible to not have a Friday 13th is 14 months (I think it would have been funky if it was 13 months but not to be)?  How about that friggatriskaidekaphobia is a fear of Friday's that happen to fall on the 13th?  Nobody knows why exactly we consider Friday 13th to be unlucky but there are a few theories floating around.  Let's have some fun.

Your challenge this week is to come up with a theory as to why Friday 13th in July is especially unlucky.

If you want,  take it even further by explaining why Friday 13th in July of 2012 is even more unlucky.

You could go about this in many ways.  Maybe you can come up with some formulas that add up to this ill fated day?  Or maybe it's got something to do with they Mayan calendar?  How about some past event?  I'm sure you can come up with some really creative takes on this most untoward time.

Leave your ideas below as comments and we'll vote on which one we think is the best. (Thumbs up voting only please)


I sense creativity in you.  Use it to it's fullest.
